National Library Week 2024: Apr 7-13
April 7-13 is National Library Week! The theme for National Library Week 2024, “Ready, Set, Library!,” promotes the idea that in our always-online world, libraries give us a green light to something truly special: a place to connect with others, learn new skills, and focus on what matters most. No matter where you find yourself on the roadmap through life’s journey—preparing for a new career, launching a business, or raising a family—your library provides an inclusive and supportive community where everyone belongs.

  • Monday: Right to Read Day is a National Day of Action in support of the right to read.
  • Tuesday: National Library Workers Day, a day for everyone to recognize the valuable contributions made by library workers.
  • Wednesday: National Library Outreach Day, a day the dedicated library professionals who are meeting their patrons where they are.
  • Thursday: Take Action for Libraries Day, a day for all library advocates to support access to libraries. 
  • Friday: Saving the best for last, Friday is THANK A SPRING-FORD MEDIA SPECIALIST OR LIBERIAN DAY!
